Relax,,,,,,,Your're on Island Time

                                                                           Hello everyone,

                                                Here on our little Island (Prince Edward Island)
                                                where time seems to go at a more relaxed pace,
                                               we are enjoying some perfect summer days.

                                                    I love this little pillow that I found in a small
                                                   shop in the lovely little town of Georgetown.
                                                   The shop is in a new colorful building just coming
                                                   into Georgetown and they had more for $19 as well
                                                  as some other pretty pillows etc.
                                                  Georgetown is such a pretty place to go in summer.
                                                                   It is perfect for our boathouse ...love
                                                                   the color but also the embroidered
                                                                   Relax....your're on Island Time.



                                                    Hope you have some time to relax and if
                                                              you are on the Island why not head to the
                                                              beach for awhile. There is nothing more
                                                              relaxing then the sound of the waves lapping
                                                             on the shore and the occasional cry of the

However, if you are looking to relax on
Friday there are still tickets left for my
annual Garden Party Tea.

Just looking at your beautiful relaxing blue vignette in your boathouse makes me feel I've been transported to "Island Time". You've done a wonderful job creating the look that "goes" with that fabulous pillow. Wish I lived closer so I could attend your Garden Party!

So pretty and relaxing Carolyn. Love the soft and serene blue tones. I wish I could attend your gorgeous tea party. It would be such fun.

Can't wait to see all the wonderful photos.

All the aqua color is perfect for your little boathouse. How pretty. Now wouldn't I love to join in one of your garden teas? Just living a little too far away. Hope it goes well. I love the umbrella shot!

Oh what nautical perfect awesomeness!

What sweet happy pictures.

I grew up on an island and my sister would love that pillow, because she bought the family house on the lake so it would stay in the family.

Last summer they painted the batten-board ranch house in a neat nautical Cape Cod dark blue.....and she just moments ago shared they painted the limestone long bricks all white. Now we know my mother is rolling in her grave about it, but to be honest - it's a nice touch for what is now a large cottage lake home - gives it a summertime beachy look and I love it.

Rest in peace, Mom. Times have changed in the 20 years since you've left us. ♥♥♥

Know what I love best about this post? The fact that your seasons lag behind mine and many others' whose posts I read, I really savor seeing the seasons through your eyes - timely, rather than rushed. Many are already thinking toward fall (I admit, so am I), but I don't want to rush things. Summer is good, island time is even better. Nice post.

These colors are wonderful. And those gorgeous pops of red! I would love to come to one of your garden tours and get into island time. Perhaps some day!

Pamela Gordon said...

I love the pillow and the saying on it! And how I'd love to join you for tea and a tour of your lovely gardens etc. I hope it's successful. Enjoy!

The colors are so soothing! Love your displays. Yes, life on an island needs to be relaxing! I have plans to visit your island in the future. Would love to attend your tea when I do. Do you do it every year in Aug? Sounds like so much fun!

Carolyn said...

Hi Jann,
Yes the garden tea has always been in August.....maybe sometime I will see you here!

As cores suaves transmitem muita paz. Estou ansiosa pelas fotos do seu chá. Com certeza um momento especial para seus convidados. Quem sabe um dia retorno a ilha e participe do chá. Felicidades.
